Campus mourns loss of longtime 
Spanish Professor 



Sherae Jones' 1 1 

La Vie Staff Writer 

A black crepe hangs across the 
door of an office in the Foreign 
Language Department on the third 
floor of Humanities. It has been 
there several weeks. Just as it is in 
European culture, the black crepe 
indicates mourning, something the 
LVC community is doing after the 
death of beloved Spanish professor, 
Dr. Diane Iglesias. 

Iglesias, 59, a professor of Span- 
ish, died on Oct. 9 at her home in 
Cleona. She had cancer. Students 
of Iglesias, as well as faculty memO. 
bers, remain in shock, seeing that 
no one knew she was ill. She taught 
until a week before she died. 

On Oct. 15, the campus com- 
munity gathered in her memory for 
a memorial service in Miller Cha- 
pel. The service consisted of Span- 
ish musical selections and a time 
for reflection from colleagues and 
students. There was also a memory 
book from her "extended family 
at Lebanon Valley College" where 
students and colleagues wrote their 
memories of her. The Memory 
book, which was located in the lob- 
by of Miller Chapel until Oct. 23, 
reflected mainly on the enthusiasm 
and kindness she showed to her 
colleagues and students. The book 
was then presented to the family. 

Stephen MacDonald, LVC 
president, admitted that he did not 
know her personally, but profes- 
sionally. He observed her classes 
while serving as dean of the fac- 
ulty and said that "she was a terrific 
teacher and serious scholar who 
researched her literature." Mac- 
Donald also told of her importance 
to the faculty. He said she was a

professor at LVC, passed away on Oct. 9, 2009 



leader and often elected to various 
committees. He also added that, 
although people may have not 
agreed with her, she was in fact 
well respected by all. He referred to 
her as "the rock of our community, 
someone you build your house or 
foundation on. Solid." 

Dr. James Scott, chairperson of 
the foreign language department, 
said he and Iglesias started at LVC 
in 1976. When asked about sto- 
ries and memories he may have of 
her, he simply said that "everyone 
has a story about her." So does he. 
"While she was Department Chair 
of Foreign Language," he said, "she 
kept in her office the Famous Cook- 
ie Jar. As department chair she had 
to sign papers for students. How- 
ever, whenever she signed their pa- 
pers they were to bring her cookies 



for the jar. The Famous Cookie Jar 
also was for when students felt they 
needed a cookie. Whenever they 
needed a cookie, they were to take 
one out of the jar." Dr. Scott smiled 
as he reflected upon the story He, 
like others, will miss her deeply. 

Iglesias, a New York City native, 
received both her Bachelors (in 
1971) and Masters (in 1974) from 
Queens College in Flushing, N.Y. 
In 1979 she received her doctorate 
from the City University of New 
York. She taught at various colleges 
before joining the LVC faculty in 
1976. For 14 years she served as 
the chair of the foreign language 
department. Her unique teaching 
style earned her the Thomas Rhys 
Vickroy Award for Distinguished

Homecoming 

Rain cant damper 
Dutchman pride 



Kristin Witzel ' 1 1 

La Vie Staff Writer 

Oktoberfest is an all week- 
end event that combines Family 
Weekend and Homecoming for 
students, families and alumni. 
The festivities began with a girls 
powder-puff football game on 
Thursday night. Teams included 
the freshmen and juniors versus 
the sophomores and seniors. The 
sophomores and seniors won the 
game with a shut out score of 24- 
0. 

Friday night s events included 
the hypnotist, Michael Anthony, 
followed by a Pep Rally to get ev- 
eryone fired up about the sporting 
events and marching band on Sat- 
urday. Due to the rain, the event 
was moved from Arnold Field to 
Lutz Hall. The fireworks were 
also canceled due to the move in- 
doors. 

On Saturday, the homecom- 
ing court was introduced dur- 
ing the football game's halftime. 
Gina DiCamillo was crowned 
Homecoming Queen next 
to Homecoming King, Mark 
Fersch. The football team played 
King s College and won with a 
score of 40-14. The ice hockey 
team played SUNY Fredonia 
and suffered a loss with a score 
of 1-6. The field hockey game 
was postponed to Sunday at 1 
p.m. against Alvernia. To end 
the day s festivities, students en- 
joyed a Homecoming Dance in 
the Underground.

IGLESIAS: Gone, but not forgotten 



Continued from Page 1 

Teaching at LVC in 1993. She was 
very avid about her career, and of- 
ten spoke at academic conferences, 
organized workshops for teachers 
and published many articles. She 
even served as a translator and in- 
terpreter for many organizations. 

She s is survived by her husband 
and former professor emeritus of 
philosophy at LVC, Dr. John Hef- 
fner and two children, Carolyn 
and Andrew. Not only will she be 
missed by her family and close 
friends, but also by her students 
and LVC community members. 

Alyse Canciello '10, one of her 



students, said she was honored to 
speak on behalf of the late professor. 
"I could write a book [at the least] 
about all of the memories I've had 
with Dra." Canciello referred to Igle- 
sias as "Doctora" and said the two of 
them met when she was a freshman. 
Iglesias had been her adviser for Span- 
ish Education. She admitted that al- 
though they did not always see eye to 
eye, "Dra Iglesias is the best professor 
I have ever had the privilege to know." 
She referred to the 8 a.m. phonetics 
course that the enthusiastic professor 
taught as "a mental workout," adding, 
Til never forget how crazy that class 



was . . . from the crazy quotes, to the 
dances, to her complaining about the 
workers outside of Humanities." As 
a final goodbye she said, ". . . but until 
we meet again, Descanse en Paz . . . le 
echo de menos." It translates as "rest 
in peace, I will miss her." 

Caitlin Bedford '10, another stu- 
dent, said she valued that Iglesias 
pushed her students to do their best 
in all aspects of life. "She made you 
face the tough realizations, deal with 
them, and overcome them. Failing or 
quitting was never an option for her 
or any of us," Bedford said. A Span- 
ish and French Education major, 



Bedford said that she will not only 
use what she learned from Iglesias in 
her classrooms, but also in her every- 
day life. 

The life of Dr. Diane Iglesias will 
never be forgotten. Her memories 
will live with those who shared 
them with her. Her enthusiastic, 
energized, inspiring, and fashion- 
able style will be greatly missed. 
Any words of sympathy or memo- 
rial contributions can be sent to 
the family at 1 19 East Chestnut St., 
Cleona, Pa. 17042.

Who's in charge around here anyway? 



Matthew Howell- Clarke '10 

La Vie Staff Writer 

Who really runs this campus? 
The administration? The teach- 
ers? The students? While the 
other two groups admittedly con- 
tribute a lot to Lebanon Valley 
College, the students have more 
power than many might believe. 
Lebanon Valley College's Student 
Government (SG) is a collection 
of 34 student representatives who 
make many of the important de- 
cisions on campus and lend their 
opinion to the administration on 
many other decisions. 

SG President Mark Fersch '10 
leads the group along with fel- 
low executive board members 
vice president Katie Krediet '10, 
treasurer Spiros Anastasiadis '10, 
secretary Ashten O'Brien '11 and 
club liaison Mary Kent '11. Each 
class is represented on SG by a 
class president, vice president, 
treasurer, and secretary as well as 
four general student representa- 



tives, all voted into office by the 
student body. Commuter students 
have an additional two representa- 
tives on SG. 

Fersch would like his fellow stu- 
dents to know that "Student Govern- 
ment is an organization built on ser- 
vice. Its members are fellow students 
who truly wish to be a part of the or- 
ganization. The ultimate goal of Stu- 
dent Government is to comprehen- 
sively and successfully represent the 
student body to the college adminis- 
tration, faculty, and community." 

Throughout the year, figures 
such as LVC President Stephen 
MacDonald and Vice President 
for Student Affairs Greg Krikorian 
appear at SG meetings to discuss 
issues such as the most recent slew 
of car break-ins and the upcoming 
renovations of the Mund College 
Center. During meetings, SG re- 
sponds to topics that the adminis- 
tration brings up, discusses other 
student issues, and plans events 
such as Homecoming, Winter For- 
mal and Senior Week. Important 



campus wide initiatives such as the 
Dutchmen Once Card are also dis- 
cussed, voted upon, implemented 
and sometimes created by SG. 

SG is also responsible for the 
allocation of the money for most 
student organizations on campus 
and the planning and execution of 
Dutchmen Day, the annual on-cam- 
pus carnival/ day off from classes. 

Outside of the weekly Monday 
evening meetings, various members 
meet with different college groups 
such as the LVC-Annville Coalition, 
the office of Public Safety and Hall- 
mark Dining & Conference Services 
to voice student concerns. Katie 
Krediet meets weekly with Kriko- 
rian to discuss general student issues 
brought forth by the members of SG. 

However, SG is more than an 
all-powerful campus organization. 
It is made up of students from dif- 
ferent majors and different on- 
campus organizations with vary- 
ing interests. Majors ranging from 
Biology to Accounting to German 
to Digital Communications are all 



represented by members of SG. 
Organizations such as Colleges 
Against Cancer, ValleyFest, Coun- 
cil of Christian Organizations, 
as well as Greek life and various 
sports teams and musical groups 
are also represented on SG. Krediet 
says, "My favorite part of SG is the 
bond that everyone shares. There 
are many diverse people in SG, yet 
once a week we come together and 
have a meeting." Fersch shared that 
his favorite part of SG is "being part 
of the SG family." 

"Family" is a common word 
used among the members of SG 
when they are discussing their 
closely knit group. Class of 2010 
Secretary Emily Berger says, "My 
favorite part of SG is the fact that 
I have met wonderful people 
through it. I have a personal affinity 
for Student Government because it 
really helped shape me into who I 
am today. Without SG, I wouldn't 
have certain friends in my life, nor 
would I have some of the qualities 
or traits I do today."

still others because it would look 
good on a resume. But they all 
choose to remain a member of the 
organization to make a difference 
on LVC's campus. 

Ashley Smith '13 would like to 
remind the LVC community that 
"SG is implemented to get the 
student voice heard. Any mem- 
ber of SG is more than happy to 
get your ideas and opinions about 
anything that has to do with your 
college experience. Feel free to 
approach any of the members at 
any time and no matter what the 
subject." 

Student Government meetings 
are held every Monday evening at 
9:40 p.m. in the Faust Lounge of 
the Mund College Center. The 
meetings are open to all students, 
faculty and administration.

Quittie Park flashings 

LVC student arrested and charged 



Caitlin Murphy' 1 2 

La Vie Staff Writer 

Sophomore Hung "Mike" Vo was 
arrested two weeks ago and charged 
by Annville Twp. Police with expos- 
ing himself in Quittie Park. 

Chief of Police Michael Burdge 
said Vo was charged with open 
lewdness and indecent exposure. 

"Several weeks ago, the Annville 
Police Department, took several 
complaints regarding a gentleman in 
Annville Township who would run 
by women and expose himself" the 
chief said. "Subsequently through 



some positive identification, we 
were able to build a strong lead on 
Mr. Michael Vo," Burdge said. A pre- 
liminary hearing will be scheduled 
within 30 days, police said. 

Burdge alleged that Vo con- 
fessed and was cooperating in the 
investigation. According to the Pa- 
triot-News, Vo exposed himself to 
individuals ranging in age from 12 
years to middle-aged women. 

Student Affairs Vice President 
Greg Krikorian said he could not dis- 
cuss the case, citing the Family Educa- 
tional Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, 
also known as the Buckley Amend- 



ment, which is intended to protect the 
privacy of student records. 

Although not commenting specifi- 
cally on the Vo matter, Krikorian ex- 
plained that LVC s judicial process fol- 
lows an "educational model," which is 
in place to help students grow through 
learning. Sanctions include "counsel- 
ing, educational projects, and restric- 
tions, such as separation from the 
college, and/ or residence halls." Also 
administrators must look at a student s 
previous records when determining 
appropriate measures, Krikorian said.

CAC is no stranger to the LVC 
campus. Established in 2007, under 
the leadership of Emily Moore and 
Megan McGrady, CAC has quickly 
transformed into a philanthropy. 
Current officers include President 
Sarah Bronstein, Vice President Me- 
gan McGrady Secretary Kimberly 
Holt ; and Online Chair Kimberly 
Beiler. This dedicated team organiz- 
es Relay for Life and is responsible 
for raising money for the American 
Cancer Society spreading cancer 
awareness, and putting pressure on 
State legislatures to help ease the 
fight against cancer. With a plethora 
of resources, fundraising ideas, and 
eager members, CAC is extremely 
excited about this year and hopes to 
raise a challenging goal of $52,000. 

There are four Strategic Direc- 
tions in CAC: l) Advocacy 2)Ed- 
ucation 3) Survivorship 4) Relay. 
Separate committees have been 
assigned to work on specialized 
tasks for each direction. 

Last year's efforts proved very 
successful for LVC's chapter of CAC. 
Their first Relay for Life took off with 
a sprint and never stopped fundrais- 
ing. Over 500 students from 53 
registered clubs were involved and 
helped raise approximately $46,000. 
This summer in Dallas, Texas, at 
the National Collegiate Summit, a 
conference that helps educate and 
award participating CAC members, 
small LVC was the recipient of three 
national awards! Out of 425 schools 
(Dl, D2, D3) with CAC chapters, 
LVC was given the only Honorable 
Mention Award for Cancer Educa- 
tion Chapter of the Year. After re- 
ceiving this award with surprise, 
CAC members willingly accepted 
CAC Rookie Chapter of the Year 
as well! LVC also achieved "Leader 
of Hope" status which is a selective 
status awarded only to chapters that 
complete specific deadlines and fol- 
low national guidelines. LVC is 1 
out of 32 schools in the country to 
meet the requirements of this status, 
which is an impressive accomplish- 
ment considering they were at the 
time a Rookie-chapter. All the hard 
work that these students put forth all 
year truly paid off.

Rabbit Hole" heavy with emotion 



Missy Zellner '13 

La Vie Staff Writer 

This weekend I was fortunate 
enough to have the opportunity 
to see Wig and Buckles 
production of Rabbit Hole. The 
script was phenomenal and 
the actors truly became their 
characters. I would encourage all 
LVC students to go and see this 
production. 

The story centers around Howie 
and Becca Corbett who are grieving 
the death of their son ; Danny. 
While chasing his dog into the 
street; Danny was accidentally run 
over by a teenager, named Jason 
Willet. The play follows Howie and 
Becca as they try to cope with grief 
and Jason Willet as he tries to find 
absolution. The grieving process 
is greater exacerbated by the fact 
that Izzy Beccas sister, becomes 
pregnant. Thus Becca is forced 
to simultaneously support her 
sister s pregnancy and mourn the 
loss of her own child. Nat, Becca, 
and Izzy s mother do not help the 
matter by chastising Becca for her 
lack of religious beliefs and tying 
Danny's death to the suicide of 
Arthur (Becca and Izzy s brother). 
The entire play is wracked with 
emotion — it can be almost 
guaranteed that audience members 
will both laugh and cry during the 
course of the play. 

Rabbit Hole, though fairly 
new, has already received much 
recognition. In 2007, the play 




Melissa Zellner 13 /LA VIE 

STAGING SADNESS The actors and actresses 
of Wig and Buckle's "Rabbit Hole" pull off 
emotion with talented ease 



received a Pulitzer Prize for Drama, 
a very prestigious award in theatre. 
Likewise, a movie adaptation 
starring Nicole Kidman has been 
announced and is coming out in 
early 2010. 

The playwright of Rabbit Hole, 
David Lindsay-Abaire, is likewise 
respected. Some may recognize 
him as the playwright of Fuddy 



Meers, which Wig and Buckle 
produced in the spring of 2007. 
Dr. Kevin Pry, the theatre advisor 
and dramaturge here at Lebanon 
Valley College, is a rather big fan of 
Abaire s work. 

"His works are emotionally 
challenging and actor-friendly/' Pry 
states. "The dialogue is written in a 
way to make the actors use all their 



skills." 

Specifically, Rabbit Hole deals 
with grief. 

Pry, along with many others, 
"find [Abaires] insights into the 
grieving process wonderful; he 
captures the fact that grief won t 
be perfect or well right away. 
Somehow you have to find a way 
through." 



However, without a great cast, 
any play in itself can fall through. 

Fortunately, this is not the 
case with Rabbit Hole. All the 
actors seem to truly come into 
their characters, and the range of 
emotions demonstrated by the cast 
is overwhelming. Becca Corbett 
is played by Kiley Lotz '13, while 
Andrew Texter '12 plays Howie 
Corbett. Robyn Stine '11 does 
double duty as both Izzy and the 
lighting designer. Playing Nat is 
Ashley Conzelmann '11, and last 
but not least, Jason Willet is played 
by Matt Smith '12. Kathryn Lewis 
'12, the stage manager, is overjoyed 
to be working with such a cast. 

"I'm really excited," Lewis said 
"because it's not an easy play to act. 
There are only five people, but they 
are doing a really good job." 

The director, Arlene Reiter '11 
is extremely excited. 

She says "this play is going to 
be absolutely amazing. The actors 
have done a great job in capturing 
the subtleties and emotion of the 
characters." 

All in all, Rabbit Hole was 
fantastic, and I urge you to see it, if 
you have not already. This weekend 
(October 30 through November 
l) there are shows on Friday and 
Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday 
at 2 p.m. Reiter also encourages 
everyone to come.

Laura Bremmer ' 1 2 

La Vie Staff Writer 



Its here ; ladies and gentlemen: the 
Dueling Dutchmen. There are eight 
teams competing to win the title and 
are divided by dorms. Each team re- 
ceives a different number of points 
depending on how they score in each 
activity The activities or events will 
consist of physical; mental and school 
pride challenges. 

This competition has been brought 
to you for the first time by Brandon 
Smith and Jason Kuntz. They worked 
together to adapt the program in a sim- 
ilar fashion from Smiths previous insti- 
tution and created the events to help 
foster a friendship among the different 



residential facilities. It is also meant to 
provide some fun for students. 

With the first and second events 
completed; the dodgeball tournament 
and the Homecoming pep rally there 
are three left in the fall semester of this 
year-long event. These events include 
a week long photo scavenger hunt; stu- 
dent appreciation day and a bake-off 
presentation. 

Last Friday night; at the Homecom- 
ing pep rally there was an attendance 
competition. The area that has the 
highest percentage of residents in at- 
tendance will receive the first place of 
100 points to their scores and will be 
announced in the near future. 

The week-long photo scavenger 
hunt began this past Monday. All areas 
have received an e-mail with the first 



clue. Some clues will require a photo as 
a response to the clues ; whereas others 
will require a specific location around 
campus to a photo as a response. In or- 
der to receive the next clue to continue 
your search; you must get the previous 
clue correct. There will be a total of 10 
clues in all. All clues will come from 
bhsmith(S)lvc.edu and all responses 
will be sent to the same e-mail address. 
Good luck! 

In first place ; with a 100 points 
is Keister Hall. Funkhouser follows 
with 80 points. In third place-; with 
60 points is Stanson Hall. Forth place

QUESTION OF THE WEEK 



WITH 



Melissa Zellner '13 

La Vie Staff Writer 



And 



Kristin Witzel ' 1 1 

La Vie Staff Writer 



Halloween is right around the corner, and I still don't 
know what I want to be. Any su< 



Halloween is a great op- 
portunity to be someone 
different than who you are on a 
daily basis — but there are some 
factors you must take into account 
when figuring out a costume. 

First; consider how much you are 
willing to spend on a costume. The 
more you are willing to spend, the 
more options you will have.How- 
ever, you can still get a good costume 
for a cheap price or even for free. 

Check your closet and see 
if you can mix and match your 
clothes to create a homemade 
costume, or see if you can borrow 
something from a friend. Plus, 
there is always the option of mak- 
ing a toga out of a bed sheet. Also, 
you can always reuse an old cos- 
tume (especially if you wore it at 
home and not at LVC). 

Finally, you must consider if 
you still want to be recognizable. 



This may seem to be a stupid thing 
to think about, but many people 
subconsciously take this into ac- 
count when selecting a Halloween 
costume. Some people use Hal- 
loween as an opportunity to take 
on a new identity. Others just like 
to dress up differently for a day. 
This decision may have a huge im- 
pact on how you want to dress. 

Homemade Halloween 
costume ideas 

• 80s girl — leggings, crazy hair, 
anything neon. 

• Zombie — torn clothing, make- 
up, and you can make fake blood 
with corn syrup and red food dye. 

• Rock star — bandana, ripped 
jeans, British accent 

• Zombie Rockstar — All of the 
above. Apply fake head wound to 
look like Kurt Cobain. 



This is the one night out of the year that you 


j are able to be anything at all — even things that 


may be completely out of character for you.

WHO UNLEASHED VICK? 



NinaBalogh '10 

Circulation Manager 



It is October, and for many 
people that means football sea- 
son. They will be spending their 
time following their favorite, hop- 
ing they will make it to the Super 
Bowl. I am not one of these peo- 
ple. I have never been much of a 
football fan and this season gives 
me a whole new reason to NOT 
watch the sport, and that reason is 
Michael Vick. 

Am I the only one who is 
crazed at the idea that this poor 
excuse for a human being is get- 
ting any more publicity? First, 
the Eagles pick him for the team. 
Then, although he is docked pay, 
Vick is making more money than 
most people in the country, and 



now he gets his own reality show? 

Who really wants to watch this 
train wreck go about his daily rou- 
tine? If he were still dog fighting 
would people be as interested to 
watch? Maybe if he was the one 
who had to actually fight against 
the dogs I'd see a reason for the 
show and I'd like to have a front 
row seat to see who would win 
that match. 

Why do we glorify these in- 
dividuals who serve jail time for 
such horrific things? I am a firm 
believer that everyone deserves a 
second chance, but I do not be- 
lieve that second chance should 
be rewarded by playing on an 
NFL team and making thousands 
of dollars. That is something 
people work really hard their en- 
tire lives for and, actually deserve 
when they get it. He does not de- 



serve a position people work their 
butts off for, just by getting out 
of jail and apologizing. There is a 
reason animal abuse is a crime. If 
he really wants to play football he 
should give his entire season's pay 
to animal rights, maybe then I will 
believe he is truly sorry. 

It has been argued that this 
man has nothing else he can do, 
and he should be allowed to play. 
If that argument applies to Vick, 
it should apply to everyone who 
serves jail time. If a doctor is 
locked up for malpractice or neg- 
ligence, and serves his/her time, 
should we give them a second 
chance? 

That would NEVER go over 
in society, but because this guy is 
a good football player and celeb- 
rity we can over look this. Where 
have people's values gone? As if he 



wasn't making enough money 
before, he had to have dogfights 
for extra income on the side? 
Are you serious!? 

Come on dog owners, 
google dogfights and see what 
really happens to the animals. 
Remember what kind of per- 
son your actually watching 
next time you see Vick strutting 
around the end zone. Any self- 
respecting "dog lover" would be 
mortified. If you really want to 
prove something, Mr. Vick, do- 
nate all of your earnings to ani- 
mals rights, that will say more 
than any rehearsed apology you 
can act out on TV.

Charlie Parker, a senior tail- 
back, broke not only the schools 
all-time rushing yards record 
but also the all-time carries re- 
cord in a victory Oct. 17 over 
FDU-Florham. On the first play 
of the game, Parker picked up 12 
yards and claimed two school 
records that had stood for 32 
years. 

Parker said when he broke 
the record he was very pleased; 
but he also was extremely proud 
of his team for enabling him to 
break those records that had 
been held for so long by Rick 
Coleman '78. 

After the game in which he 



Charlie Parker 

broke the record; Parker said; 
"There were a lot of congratula- 
tions on the field after the play 
but we all knew that it was only 
the first play and we had a long 
game ahead of us if we wanted to 
win." And win they did. LVC beat 
FDU 40-14 and improved its re- 
cord to 5-1 for the first time since 
1979. 

If Parker and the rest of the 
team have any say, the LVC foot- 
ball team will continue to im- 
prove its winning record. "My 
next goal in football is to step out 
on the field and win every game 
I participate in/' he said. "We all 
want to go out and win the rest 
of the games on the schedule and 
bring LVC a MAC Champion- 



ship." 

Parker played a crucial role in 
the win again Florham. He ended 
the game with 8 1 yards giving him 
a total of 3; 178 yards and 693 car- 
ries for his career. 

Parker said that there were 
several people along the way 
that helped him get to where he 
is today as a football player. He 
attributed his success to the mo- 
tivation of his parents; his senior 
class teammates and his coaches.

Both of the Lebanon Valley 
College Lacrosse Teams have been 
practicing relentlessly this fall. With 
the 1968 MAC Chapmionship 
team in the crowd, and many other 
lacrosse fans, both teams hosted a 
scrimmage, and both came out on 
top. The mens team beat Mont- 
gomery Community College in 
Maryland while the women defeat- 
ed DeSales' club team.

HOMECOMING: Teams compete during rainy weekend 

Continued from Page 8 



XC- The Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege cross country teams competed 
Friday at the Haverford JV Tee Shirt 
race. No team scoring was kept at 
the race. The men ran four miles and 
the women ran a three-mile course. 
This race was the final run before the 
MAC Championships this weekend. 
Brad Sweigart placed 18th out of 95 
athletes with a time of 21 :36. Mat- 
thew Nesmith ran a 21 :41 for 21st 
place. Other competitors included 
NickDAngelo (22:24, 37th), Alex 
Talarico (22:50, 53rd), Gabriel 
Lincoln-Decu (23:48, 67th), Corey 
Johnson (24:14, 76th) and Patrick 
Tierney (25:04, 83rd). 

Adam Abruzzo, who ran a 23:25 
for 61st place, said, ". . . the key strat- 
egy is working together. We all do the 
exact same thing . . . run five miles . . 
. fast, but we work together through 
sheer optimism and the knowledge 
that we are achieving the same thing." 

Megan Long led the way for the 
women with a ninth-place time of 
19:20. Emily Devivo had a time of 
21 :42, coming in 3 1st place out of 
83 runners. Other LVC competitors 
included Victoria Broderick (21 :47, 
41st), BriannaEroh (22:30, 50th), 
Katie Sharkey (23:31, 58th), and 
Lauren Johnson (23:57, 61st). Jenn 
Cronin was sick for the week. 

Long said, "We have a lot of 
talent and are gearing toward third 
place at our MAC meet. Each girl 
brings something to the table." 

Mens Soccer- Andrew Cooper 
scored the winning goal Saturday 



against Widener just 2:40 into the 
game. Jordan Auman fed Cooper 
the ball for the only goal of the 
game in LVC s 1-0 win over the 
Pride. This goal was much different 
then Cooper s tying goal with 2:36 
left in the game against Elizabeth- 
town last Wednesday, forcing the 
two teams into overtime. E-town 
eventually won that game in the 
second overtime on a penalty kick. 

Justin Hutchinson, a senior 
on the team, said, "We want to 
attack constantly and force teams 
to make mistakes. If we work hard, 
commit to the program philoso- 
phy, and work toward team goals 
[not individual goals] we will be 
very successful." LVC improved to 
8-6-2 for the season. 

Women's Soccer-LVC (6-11-1) 
fell to Widener on Saturday after 
the Pride scored three goals less 
than 20 minutes into the game. 
This lead proved to be too much as 
the Dutchmen lost 3-1. Caryinna 
Venchak score first for the Pride. 
Sarah Schaffer scored the next two 
before the half was over. These 
goals did not mean that LVC did 
not put up a fight. Ely Kirkhoff, 
Emily Bainbridge, Megan Sager, 
and Nicole Snyder all had shots 
on goal. Snyder got the Dutchmen 
on the board with a goal in the 
53rd minute. Her pass came from 
Bainbridge, giving Snyder her sev- 
enth goal of the season. While the 
Dutchmen broke the shutout, they 
were not able to rally back a win. 



Sami Young, the goalkeeper for 
the team, said afterward, "We take 
things one game at a time, even 
though it is tough at times. We are a 
team, and no matter what happens, 
we are always there for each other." 

Ice hockey-The Dutchmen fell 
to Fredonia State 6-1 last Saturday. 
While the scoreboard may not 
reflect it, LVC put up a good fight. 
Rich Drazin, goalkeeper for LVC, 
had 25 saves for the first two periods 
and held Fredonia to one goal. The 
third period is where the Dutchmen 
ran into trouble. Early in the third, 
Nicholas Schultz scored the first 
goal for the Dutchmen this year. 
Brad Surdams pass to Brent Davis 
was knocked away, but Shultz got 
control and evened the score with 
17 minutes to play. But the Blue 
Devils scored twice, less than a min- 
ute apart, to take the lead for good. 
Drazin had 34 saves on the night. 

Sean Wilson, a senior on the 
team, said hard work will make the 
difference for LVC this season. "Ev- 
ery game for us will be a challenge," 
he said. "For us to be competitive we 
need to play within ourselves. Each 
player needs to come to the rink 
ready and willing to perform their 
role." 

Volleyball- LVC defeated two 
teams this past weekend in the na- 
tions capital. The Dutchmen began 
the day with a 3-0 (25-22, 27-25, 
25-17) win over host Gallaudet. 
Emily Hopkins had 15 kills on 27 
attempts with only one error. Other 



key players for LVC were Michelle 
Little (8 kills), Joelle Snyder (6), 
Jess Raber (5) and Jamie Hawk (5). 
Emily Perkins had 37 assists for that 
game. Four girls reached double dig- 
its in digs for LVC. Perkins had 16, 
Angela Kuperavage had 13, Raber 
had 1 1, and Hannah Free had 10. 
The Dutchmen had five aces. Hawk 
had four assisted blocks, Raber had 
three stops and Snyder and Hopkins 
had two block assists. 

LVC stopped Scran ton 3-0 
(25-19, 25-13, 27-25) in the 
second match of the day. The 
offense was spot on with Snyder 
having 12 kills on 23 attempts 
and only one error. Other key of- 
fensive players included Hawk ( 1 1 
kills), Nicole Barra (9), and Paige 
Yocum (7). Kuperavage had 20 
digs for the defense while Perkins 
had nine digs. 

Little, a junior on the team, 
said, "The biggest strength of our 
team is the trust between team- 
mates. Each person does her part 
and is reliable in that sense. We 
are also all pretty flexible so if 
someone is having a rough day, we 
can pick each other up." 

The Dutchmen will play Eliza- 
bethtown at home on Oct. 28 at 
7 p.m. This will be the final match 
for both teams and will deter- 
mine who will have home-court 
advantage in the Commonwealth 
Conference playoffs.

Dutchmen Push season to 6-1 For the first time since 1961. Right: Caleb Fick combined with Colt Zarilla to

La Vie Staff Writer 

The Flying Dutchmen Sat- 
urday improved their record to 
6-1 for the first time since 1961 
as they rolled by King's 40-14 on 
their Oktoberfest weekend in the 
Valley. 

LVC (3-1 in MAC play) re- 
mains a game behind Delaware 
Valley and its rival Albright for first 
place in the MAC after both teams 
won Saturday The Dutchmen are 
looking to make history this up- 
coming weekend on Halloween. A 
win over Widener would mark the 
best start in the football program's 
history 

Colt Zarilla and Caleb Fick 
combined to throw for 200 yards 
and three touchdowns for the 
Dutchmen, as two of those TD 
passes ended in the end zone 
thanks to the hands and speed of 
Sean Donovan. The two- headed 
monster rushing attack of Charlie 
Parker (109 yards 1TD) and Ben 
Guiles (76 yards) led LVC on the 
ground. 

King's offense racked up 348 
yards of total offense and ran for 
220 yards. This statistic was a rare 
sight for the Dutchmen, as they 



have only allowed an average 
of 320 yards this season as well 
as only 76 yards on the ground. 
However, the LVC defense in- 
tercepted Kings QB Corey Lavin 
three times, including a return 
for a touchdown by Matt Lillis

on his second interception of the 
day and another coming from big- 
play strong safety Dane Eichel- 
berger. After the game CB Matt 
Lillis said that when the defense 
and he returned the interception 
he caught for a touchdown "it 
was like running behind a wall of 
blocking fullbacks." 

"I'm really proud of our foot- 
ball team," said head coach Jim 
Monos. "They moved the ball on 
us in the first half, but they only 



got two field goals. We hit some 
big pass plays, some big plays for 
scores." 

This was the Dutchmen's sec- 
ond straight game and third this 
season of scoring 40 or more 
points. King's took a 3-0 lead on an 
Andrew DeRito 28- 
yard field goal, cap- 
ping a 13-play drive. 
LVC responded 
the way it has often 
this season, using 
a quick-play strike 
to score. Fick went 
long for Donovan, 
who tight-roped the 
sideline for 60 yards 
to the end zone for 
his second score of 
the season. 
Less than four minutes later, 
following an interception by Lil- 
lis, LVC went for a play- action fake 
reverse and Zarilla hit a wide-open 
Joe Brennan, who broke through 
two tackles to go 54 yards for the 
score. "We've got firepower, we've 
said that all along. Caleb Fick start- 
ed slow, but came on strong and 
played a good football game." 

Donovan said" "We had a cou- 
ple of shots downfield and we took 
them, and it really paid off. Not 



only wide receivers, but we have 
weapons at running back, this of- 
fense is really explosive and we're 
starting to show what we can do." 

Another DeRito field goal cut 
it to 13-6, and LVC had just 1:18 
before halftime to produce anoth- 
er score. Fick masterfully put to- 
gether a five-play 56-yard drive in 
that span, completing a nine-yard 
pass to a diving Donovan at the 
front flag to take a 20-6 lead into 
the break. 

Lillis highlighted the third 
quarter with his 31 -yard inter- 
ception return for a score, giving 
LDC a 33-14 lead. Fullback Bryan 
Lynch punctuated the win in the 
fourth quarter, bursting up the 
middle on third down for a one- 
yard touchdown to close the scor- 
ing. 

The Dutchmen are flying high, 
and hope to continue their mo- 
mentum this Saturday when they 
visit Widener. LVC beat Widener 
in OT last season after an emo- 
tional stop by the defense on a 
fourth and inches to seal the vic- 
tory.
